This is from another thread a couple weeks ago. He actually shot this opening day.
Lets take a look at what a Nosler Ballistic Tip in .308 does to a buck at 100 yards. Yesterday morning.
Here's the entry hole side. The hole is in that shoulder in the dark area. The shock to this side extends from way up in the neck down to behind the diaghram. This bullet hit ribs on both sides.
Exit hole. Yes, exit. I've killed more deer than I can count with this round out of '06 at 3200FPS and never once stopped it. Apparently you ain't stopping it in .308 either but that's the smallest exit wound I've ever seen on one of these. Doing around 3000 FPS
The heart, or what's left of it. I wish I'd gotten a pic of the cavity. The chest cavity was cherry jelly. Just liquid and snot. Nothing that looked like it actually came from a lung in there.
Entry on the left, exit on the right.
The fartherest I've ever seen a deer run after being hit by this is about 80 yrds. And that was a dead deer running spraying blood like a firehose.
Edit to add.
Entry hole where it struck the rib and turned it into a bomb.
Exit hole where it shows that the bullet is still intact, and still full of energy enough to blow this side up too even upon impact with another rib.
